Damilano Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A touch of ash, some very nice fruit tones, very floral, herbal, spicy, slightly brambly red fruit. Sweet in the mouth on entry, a bit matte, nicely expressed fruit but a touch forced and compressed, low-key slightly weedy, slightly herbal, slightly green tomato-scented wild raspberry fruit. Hint of nettle and herb, a bit rich, and a touch clumsy perhaps but nice fruit. (86-87pts)

Damilano:
The origins of the Damilano farming company date back to over a centry ago, when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather og the current owners, started to grow and make wine from his own grapes.

The origins of the Damilano farming company date back to over a centry ago, when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather og the current owners, started to grow and make wine from his own grapes. This tradition was kept up by Giacomo Damilano, the founder's son-in-low, together with his children until it passed on to his four grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefather's land today. The wines produced are renowned for their upright style and the estate is widely appreciated thanks to the strictness and passion that accompany all of the company's activities. Read less

Damilano’s 2006 Barolo Cannubi emerges from the glass with surprising richness and weight. Berries, flowers and spices flow effortlessly from this rich, textured Cannubi. The wine shows quite a bit more depth than is usually the case for a vineyard that tends towards the feminine, but the textural elegance and silkiness on the mid-palate and finish serve to provide a sense of proportion. Fine, elegant tannins frame the close. This is another fine effort from Damilano. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2026.

The prized Cannubi cru offers fruit that is interpreted by some of the finest winemakers in northern Italy. This expression from the dynamic Damilano winery is characterized by tight tannins, power, personality and ripe berry flavors. Pair this Barolo with risotto topped with thinly shaved truffles.

Starts out supple, with the smooth texture framing black cherry, bitter almond and licorice notes. A firm base of tannins is offset by sweet fruit, as this glides to a lingering aftertaste of tobacco, spice and cherry. Best from 2013 through 2032.

A rich and complex wine composed of 100% Nebbiolo born in a great year that is known for its early maturing and accessibility qualities.

The 2000 Barolo Cannubi, with notes of cinnamon, raisins, and chocolate in addition to its ripe red fruit is sweet and long on the palate, velvety but with a rising density which indicates another dozen years of satisfying drinking ahead. Drink 2005-2017.

Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, truffle and nutty oak on the slightly medicinal nose. Lush, sweet, broad and rich, with impressive volume but also good grip and verve. Offers a fine-grained texture and lovely sweetness of fruit. Finishes fresh and persistent. Next to this, the Liste seems dry.

Damilano is one of Barolo's historic wineries and Cannubi its most historic vineyard cru. All that history combines here to shape a traditional, yet New World wine with plush roundness and intense notes of spice, leather, pipe tobacco, polished red wood and black currant. It's luscious, velvety and tight in the mouth and will improve with age. Drink with venison or game.
